    Review: Poorboy's World Spray & Rinse No Touch Wheel Cleaner

    Review: Poorboy’s World Spray and Rinse Wheel Cleaner

    (Cee Dog format)


    Test Subject: 2001 Toyota Rav4

    Purpose: To simply test the effectiveness of the product on severely neglected wheels but not to make them show room new looking

    Time to complete: Approximately 45 minutes. This includes unpacking/repacking cleaning items.

    Weather: Approximately 80 degrees and sunny with low humidity.

    Introduction:

    Product Description (from back of bottle): Spray and Rinse Wheel Cleaner is by far the easiet and simplest product you will ever use. This unique formula is highly effective and is safe for clearcoated, painted, plastic & chrome wheels. Spray & Rinse removes brake dust, oil, road grime, dirt, fresh tar as well as some oxidation and rust too.

    Initial Product Observations:

    01. Manufacturer Claims: True
    02. Packaging: Standard clear non-descript bottle. Same bottle used with almost all their other products, except a chemical resistant sprayer is included w/32oz bottle.
    03. Directions: Very clear and easy to follow
    04. Consistency: Like water
    05. Color: Clear to very slight yellow color
    06. Scent: Acidic
    07a Size: 32oz.
    07b Additional Sizes available: 1 Gallon & 5 Gallon (direct from PB World only it looks like)
    08. Current Price for 32oz bottle: $15.99 ($0.50per ounce)
    09. Manufacturer: PoorBoy’s World
    10. Made in: USA

    Additional products used for prep, during application, or removal:

    1. Worx Hydroshot
    2. 5 gallon bucket w/water (used maybe 3 gallons if that)
    3. Ez-Detail Brush
    4. Maguire’s APC
    5. Tuf Shine Tire Brush
    6. Poorboy’s World Bold N Bright Tire Dressing
    7. Applicator Pad


    Method of Application (per manufacture instructions on bottle):

    First rinse wheel with cool water. Spray an even amount onto the wheel surface to be cleaned. Make sure that all areas to be cleaned have been covered. Do all the wheels of the vehicle, then remove with a good steady stream of water from a hose or power washer and make sure all product is rinsed of thoroughly. NO brushing, NO rubbing…is needed. (Remember to spray around the lug nuts, and into the crevices that are upside down)

    * NOT intended for use on: hot, uncoated or highly polished aluminum wheels without dilution or spot testing.

    Pros:
    1. Removes brake dust with ease
    2. Easy removal

    Cons:
    1. Twice the price of Meguiars Wheel Brightener (when comparing the gallon size containers. I have never used the Meguiars product so not sure how they compare in terms of ease of use and cleaning ability.
    2. It is acidic so proper use and proper safety equipment should be used.


    Final Observations and Summary:

    Autogeek link to product: https://www.autogeek.net/poorboys-wheel-and-tire.html

    Product worked as described.

    Was very please with the performance of the product on wheels that have not been taken care of in probably several years.

    Stuff works well! As you noted is expensive compared to most acid wheel cleaners. But if you are a fan of poorboys which why shouldn’t you be it’s always a good choice !

    WOW

    I've never used a Poorboys product but this is going to be my first! I see this coming in handy during the winter when I can't get to the car for a week or two (hopefully it's not THAT bad of a winter).

    Thanks for the real world review on a real wheel

    Thank you for the review. Idk. Spray and rinse does not look acceptable at all. After mild scrub it looks good. But then alot of products can claim that. Maybe I'm missing something?

    For how bad these wheels were, the spray and rinse part worked real well. I didn't put any more product on when i scrub them, just a squirt or two of APC and they were 'good to go".

    Yeah there really isn't a product out there where you spray, let dwell and rinse off and they look good. I think this particular Poorboys product would work great on wheels that are 2 or 3 weeks old and have slightly above average brake dust. Now something like the OP posted, well, those have to be touched by a human holding something, just the way it is and the way it will always be.

    Since this seems to be very acidic to work is this product going to harm coated wheels at all?

    Per the manufacture - no, no harm should be done. I'm not really sure how acidic it really is. I'm going to check tomorrow if one of our labs have a ph meter so I can measure it.
